Mobile changes 📱

Before the new experience, Classcraft would run differently on the mobile companion app and mobile browser. We’ve made an effort to make Classcraft responsive on mobile devices and to harmonize this experience.

We’ve corrected the following issues on mobile:

  • Blocked certain pages that were not responsive on mobile until we can address them ⛔ 
  • Fixed backgrounds so they fit the screen better when cropped
  • Ensured that the Messaging section appears on mobile for parents
  • Made the text editor responsive
  • Fixed a scrolling issue in the Profile view
  • Removed the buttons to download the application as the mobile app and mobile browser are now the same

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments related to these fixes, please let us know! If you need assistance, check our Knowledge Center or contact support@classcraft.com for help! 😄

Class Tools & settings changes

With the creation of the four chapters, some of the tools had to be changed and moved around. 🛠️ Similarly, the settings have to reflect the current way the app works.

We’ve corrected the following issues lately:

  • Made sure the Random Picker worked properly (buttons were not showing) ❤️ 🐲
  • Adjusted the Health values of existing official Formative Reviews (Boss Battles) 
  • Made it possible to import settings from an archived class that was not part of the new experience
  • Made it possible to import/export universal powers

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments related to these fixes, please let us know! 😄

User interface changes

The user interface (anything that you can see and click in Classcraft) has changed a lot with the new experience! We’ve tried to update everything seamlessly but sometimes, slip ups just happen.

Let's have a look at some of the things we fixed recently 🕵️

  • The Reward Track on free accounts displayed the incorrect amount of Gold Pieces earned every level
  • The Hero Pact, Student Certificates, and the Student Codes documents are now working again 📜
  • Changed the red color used for Health Points to the new dark pink color in several key places
  • Changed the terms Health and Crystals for their icons in a few key places ❤️ 💎
  • Made sure that the Reward Track did not erroneously indicate students earning a Crystal at level one
  • Hid powers from the Reward Track and deal with damage interface when students don’t have a character class yet

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments related to these fixes, please let us know! 😁

Accounts & characters changes

With the new experience, we’ve added a new character class with no powers of their own in Chapter 2 and enabled teachers to use Classcraft without any student accounts or characters. This created a ripple effect throughout the app and many issues needed to be addressed.

We’re still tracking issues related to account logins and permissions, how characters work throughout the chapters, etc.

Let's have a look at some things we’ve fixed lately 🕵️

  • Google Classroom was found to not work properly but can now be used again to create a class’ student list
  • We made sure that year after year, students who are not in an organization could reuse the same credentials to log in and create a character
  • Ensured that when a character is archived while having no character class, it’s still visible in the Hall of Heroes
  • Fixed an issue where parents of children in the new experience could not log in
  • Made sure that the Select character button is not displayed for parents or other students

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments related to these fixes, please let us know! 😄
